A Short Guide to Risk Appetite

David Hillson & Ruth Murray-Webster (Gower Publishing, 2012)

produce clear definitions and simple guidelines, answering the all-important question: ‘How much risk should we take?’
The book also introduces the RARA Model linking risk appetite with risk attitude as a practical tool to control risk-taking.
